Canadian Wall

We are The National Institute of The Study of Violence, an organization based in the United States. We thank you for visiting our website. The page you are viewing is the Canadian Wall of Remembrance. We posted this page because we feel there must be cooperation between women of all countries to end violence against women and we believe that the women listed should be remembered they paid the ultimate price for being a woman. They are the women who have gone before us and their lives should be remembered. These women believed in themselves and wanted to live their lives and determine their destiny. They took an active role in trying to determine the direction of their lives and the future of their families. It should never be said that these women contributed to their murders. When these women were murdered they were going about their daily lives. Some were trying to work a job and be a wife and mother. Others had succeeded as a parent and were looking forward to playing with their grandchildren. Some were attending college and working a job. Others were working at night because working the midnight shift paid them more money, money that they needed because they had to support their children alone. Also midnight jobs allowed the women to be available to their children during the day. These women were accosted in their home, on the street and/ or on the job by assailants that were angry over the circumstances of their lives; because they were mentally ill or because they were angry or using drugs.

The women listed below were mothers, daughter, sisters, nieces, grandmothers, aunts, or cousins to someone. Their death left their family devastated and left our society deprived of their talents and vision. We cannot as a civilized nation allow women to be murdered anywhere in the world and do nothing in their name. This is why we ask that, if you believe the information on this website is value, you invite others to view our website and to download our Free E-Books. Your action may have save the life of a woman or child. Thank you for your attention.

First Nation Women

It is estimated that there are approximately five hundred First Nation Women missing in Canada, mostly from the Western Provinces, over the past fifteen years. It is alleged that these deaths and disappearances are under-reported, and that the public and media are indifferent to the murder of a native woman. It is believed that white men hunt down vulnerable Native women, and viciously beat or kill them. It is also believed that the criminal investigations of these incidents are flawed. Below is a list naming some of these women; Unless otherwise indicated the dates represent when the woman’s body was found:

Helen Betty Osborne, 19

Abducted from a city street for the sexual pleasure of two men. They felt that she should give it up because she was a squaw. She was killed in cold blood. It took sixteen years before her murderer was brought to trial. He is now walking free.
